More about Linx Technologies

Linx Technologies was founded on the belief that every engineer should have the option of using RF technology. Radio Frequency is a complex science, requiring a unique grasp of advanced technical issues and elaborate legal requirements. Adding wireless capabilities to a product has traditionally been a costly and time-consuming proposition. This has limited the widespread use of RF and prevented many potentially useful products from reaching production.

For a decade, Linx Technologies has been creating RF products that are simple for engineers to apply and offer great depth and versatility. "Wireless Made Simple" is more than just the Linx motto; it represents Linx’s commitment to offering the highest quality RF products, which are designed to provide a simple and cost-effective path to making any product wireless.
